Reports came out late last night that the Timberwolves were in advanced talks with legend KG to buyout his contract, ending his time in Minnesota.
Right off the bat, everyone figured the same thing, that KG’s career was over. But then some Minnesota writers sent cryptic tweets about how “KG wanted to retire on good terms with Minnesota and transition into ownership”, but “that didn’t work”. There were also indications that Flip Saunders was the main force behind that transition to ownership for KG, and that things fell apart after his passing.
One of my top 6 or 7 favorite live sports moments of all time was KG’s post game speech after the Finals. Still remember watching at the time, and thinking it would be an all-timer. So I’d love it if we can get a few more KG seasons under us. Preferably not with GSW though.
